Servings: 8 small balls

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips (dairy-free)
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (GF if desired)
  • 1/4 cup agave
  • 1/4 cup almonds (crushed)
  • 1/8 cup ground flax seed
  • 1/8 cup sunflower seeds

Instructions

  • In a small pan over medium heat, add peanut butter and agave. Stir and let heat for a few minutes until creamy and melted.
  • Add remaining ingredients.
  • Stir with spatula for a couple minutes to combine until chocolate thoroughly melts.
  • Remove from heat and let sit in pan about 10 minutes to cool.
  • When it cools enough to touch, mold into balls. (They'll harden further as they sit.) We store ours in an airtight container in the fridge.

Notes

Recipe yields a small batch (6-8 small balls). Feel free to double, triple, quadruple the batch as desired!
When making large batches, after molding them into balls I put them on a baking sheet and place in the freezer for about a half hour to set. Then place them in a sealed container in the fridge for storage. (This way they’re already chilled and hardened and don’t stick together upon hardening in the fridge.)
